“How can I help you?” is a project about the faceless people behind the call centres.
Who are these people with whom we talk on a daily basis? How are their lives?
This project was shot between February and June 2016 in India and in the Philippines. These two countries together employ more than 2 million people in this industry.
In exhibition there are also two other photo series shot at the same time in Mumbai and in Manila: “Commuting in Mumbai” and “No-where in Manila”. These series show a voyeurist side of José Sarmento Matos.
“How can I help you?” was published at Newsweek Magazine, Wired, Suddeutsche Zeitung, The New York Times and Lens Blog NYT.
